Chester Pride 2020 Goes Digital

As with many events have been forced to postpone or adapt to changing conditions during g the coronavirus lockdown, Chester Pride has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s main event that was due to take place on Saturday 8 August.

But, according to The Chester Standard, the committee of volunteers have set to work creating projects to continue to support the LGBTQ+ community in Chester and Cheshire West.

To replace the main event, the organisers have set up Chester Digital Pride, which will be an online event that can be found on the Chester Pride Facebook page, the Chester Pride website, and also includes workshops hosted on Zoom.

The live digital pride event will start at 10 am on 8 August with a range of programmes for children and young people that will run until noon. There will be several Safeguarding measures in place for this, which can be found on the website also.

From 1 pm there will be live performances, talks and lectures, workshops, and a live panel Q&A focussing on trans and non-binary topics. The M&S Bank MainStage takes over at 5.30 pm with entertainment from local performers, celebrities, and international artists.

Running alongside Digital pride, Chester Pride will be running their Just Ask campaign which aims to help with any LGBTQ+ issues such as mental health, abuse, employment, sexual health, hate crimes, gender transitioning, coming out, and much more. Anyone that needs help can get in touch with Just Ask by emailing help@chesterpride.co.uk.

The project has received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, as well as the Chesire Community Foundation and the Steve Morgan Foundation.

Another project is being launched in July, called Take 5 with Chester pride, that aims to promote taking five minutes a day to focus on mental, physical, and social health.
